Front Gate Tickets Waitlist FAQs

What is a waitlist?

When a show is not currently on sale (ex: pre-sale or a sold out pass type or show), items may be listed on a waitlist to offer festival or camping passes that aren’t available to the public. Due to high demand and limited availability, pricing will be dynamic and is subject to change.

Do all passes have a waitlist?

No, not every pass will offer a waitlist, due to availability. 

How do I sign up for the waitlist?
While viewing the Welcome To Rockville shopping cart, log in to your Front Gate Tickets account HERE. Click on the “YOUR ACCOUNT” tab at the top of the page. If a waitlist is available for the event you are interested in, you will see “WAITLIST” in your account options.
Once you click WAITLIST, you will see a list of pass options available to request.  
(The passes and prices listed below are hypothetical)
Select your desired pass and click “Request.” The following prompt should pop up. If you don’t see anything, make sure you have pop-ups enabled.
You will be prompted to update your Payment Method and Shipping Address in the following steps. Once your request is submitted, you will receive an email confirmation summarizing your request.  
Please note there is no way to estimate how long it will take to be next in line. There is no guarantee that you will receive an offer to purchase waitlist passes. If passes become available to purchase and your request is approved, you will be sent a waitlist confirmation. Please review this confirmation to ensure that your information is still correct. Unless you opt out of your request by the date listed in your email confirmation, you will then be charged the full amount requested to your stored Payment Method. 
*Please review your stored payment method. Since only one payment method can be saved to your Front Gate account at a time, any layaway purchases made for an FGT event might have overwritten the payment method you entered at the time of the request. Upon payment, you will receive an Order Receipt and your order will be delivered to your stored Shipping Address if the purchase was made during the event’s shipping timeline.
Am I guaranteed a pass if I’m on the waitlist?
No. Signing up for the waitlist grabs a spot in line but does not guarantee that passes will be available at a later date.
Can I request more than one type of pass?
You can only sign up for one type of pass at a time. For example, you can sign up for two VIP Weekend passes, but you cannot sign up for a VIP Weekend pass and a GA Weekend pass.
To request an additional ticket type, you would have to cancel your current request OR wait until your current request is offered, purchased, and completed.
Is there a layaway plan for waitlist passes?

Currently, layaway is not available for waitlist passes. You will be charged full price at time of purchase. 

Once I’m on the waitlist, when will waitlist passes be offered?

Waitlist passes will be released as they become available. You will receive the waitlist offer when your turn comes up, should they become available. You are not guaranteed an offer to purchase tickets.

Will waitlist passes be mailed to me or will they be placed at will call?
Waitlist passes will ship if they were purchased before the shipping cutoff. If your tickets are purchased too late to ship for your event, they can be picked up at the box office / will call window with a photo ID.
How do I access my waitlist requests in my front gate tickets account?
Log into your Front Gate Tickets account. Click on “YOUR ACCOUNT” at the top of the page. Then select “WAITLIST.”
Can I cancel my waitlist if I change my mind?
Yes, you can cancel your request at any time by logging into your Front Gate Tickets account then selecting “Waitlist” under the “Your Account” tab. 
Under your request confirmation, you will see a “Cancel Request” button. Please be sure you wish to cancel your request before doing so. Cancelling your request cannot be undone. Pricing and availability of waitlist items may vary if you decide to opt back in at a later time.  
Once you’ve canceled your request, you will receive an email confirmation of the cancellation, and you will no longer see this request in your account.
Can I update my payment method after I make the request?
Yes, you can update your request at any time by logging into your Front Gate Tickets account and selecting “Waitlist” under the “My Account” tab.
